    authoritarian classic "If...."(1967). "O Lucky Man!" shares the director and star of the latter, Malcolm McDowell. "If...." was McDowell's feature film debut, in a starring role no less, proving a compelling anti hero, perfectly suiting the expectations of its context; late 1960s, when conventional practises were beginning to be rejected, and the hippie notion surged. Before "O Lucky Man!", McDowell had truly become a star, thanks to his iconic performance in Stanley Kubrick's disturbing and highly

    its cause, nor was the films’ cause aided by its advertisements because they tended to emphasise the sensational aspects which could be found in the film. The poster which promoted the film depicted the leading character, which was played by Malcolm McDowell, while having a knife in his hand and staring psychotically. The headline of this image was "Being the adventures of a young man whose principal interests are rape, ultra- violence and Beethoven”. The thing that will firstly strike the viewer

    "A Clockwork Orange", directed by the immeasurable Stanley Kubrick, starring Malcolm McDowell, Patrick Magee, Adirenne Corri, Aubrey Morris and James Marcus and produced by Stanley Kubrick in 1971, is, in my opinion, one of the greatest morality plays ever captured on film. It leads viewer in to many different pathways of thought about the time we live in, and about the validity of the concepts of law and morality, and the applications of the two in general society. Vincent Canby was on to something

    the time, was the great Stanley Kubrick’s 1971 dystopian drama A Clockwork Orange, based on the novel by Anthony Burgess. In a futuristic society ruled by gangs, corruption, and “ultra-violence,” psychotic teen Alex (wonderfully portrayed by Malcolm McDowell) volunteers for a government-regulated experimental treatment to rid himself of his wrongdoings after committing an act of murder.

    A Clockwork Orange We are first introduced to Alex (Malcolm McDowell) in the company of his posse, strangely sipping drugged milk in a freakish bar with anatomically indiscrete manikins serving as tittie-taps and tables. The ensuing scenes flash from Alex and his three droogs brutally beating an old man to a violent rape scene to a semi-chaotic gang-brawl. The story is of Alex and his love of the old ultra-violence, his act of murder, his betrayal and imprisonment, and his cure (twice). Adapted

It is this very practice that has bound the two medias of film and narrative together. It has brought readers and viewers together in understanding a similar storyline with a similar structure. Sometimes, filmmakers have adapted films from novels successfully because of their ability to accurately portray the structure, characters and plotline from the novel throughout every

    As Madeleine L’Engle aptly said, “because to take away a man's freedom of choice, even his freedom to make the wrong choice, is to manipulate him as though he were a puppet and not a person,” taking away freedom of choice is equivalent to stripping off humanity. Mankind has evolved to have the ability to use the mind for reason and understanding, which separates humans from beasts and machines. It is this ability that allows man to analyze and formulate different choices, and have the freedom over
